The supreme court held that mar- riage licenses are open to inspec- tion since their issuance is not a court proceeding. The decision said a 1957 law which decrees that the records of agencies of state are open to inspection, does not apply to county courts. County court records, the supreme court declared, are open to inspec- tion "by persons having business therewith," as decreed in an earlier law. The court interprets this to mean that the right to inspect court records is limited to those with direct or personal interest in the court matters sought for inspection. The court noted that news gather- ers are entitled to no greater right court records. White. Rte. 2. Mandan; and Mrs. Judge S*,rutz wrote: "Surely the Viola Moltzen, New Salem.

James F. Ulmer, state director of selective service for North Dakota. Col. Ulmer said the applications must be returned not later than midnight, April 7. "The test is for the student's own benefit," Col. Ulmer said. "A local board should have full information about a student to classify hL,~n, in- eluding his class standing and a score on this test." Scientific and professional engin- eering organizations are urging stu- dents in these fields to take the test, the state director pointed out.
